Chelsea midfielder Michael Ballack has insisted he does not want to transfer to Spanish champions Real Madrid.
Ballack scored just four Premier League goals last season
Last week Real coach Bernd Schuster told German television: "Ballack fits perfectly to Real Madrid. I can very well imagine him playing for my team."
But the 30-year-old Ballack told Chelsea's website: "I have no interest in leaving Chelsea and I have had no contact with Real Madrid whatsoever.
"I am totally committed to Chelsea. I came here to win trophies."
Ballack's contract with Chelsea runs until 2010 and he added: "I am very happy in London professionally and for my family. The speculation about me leaving is not true.
"I am frustrated by my injury at the moment but I am working hard to be fit and hope to be back very soon to join my team-mates."
Madrid have made a number of offers to Ballack during his career, including one in 2005 when he moved from Bayern Munich to Chelsea.
Last season Ballack scored four goals in 26 Premier League games for Chelsea.
"I thought about Michael before he went to Chelsea," added Schuster, who was speaking from Real's training camp in Irdning in Austria.
"He was linked with Real back then, when it was clear Zinedine Zidane was leaving.
"He would be the link between midfield and attack and would really be perfect."
